The real name of Gautama Buddha was Siddartha Gautama. The name Gautama Buddha was given when he got enlightened.

He was born in Lumbini, the western part of Nepal in the 6th Century B.C. Siddartha Gautama was a prince.🤴

Prince Siddhartha was only 16 when he got married. His wife’s name was Yasodhara.

At the age of 29, Prince Siddhartha left Nepal in search of a way to end rebirth, old age, disease and death.

Siddhartha sat under a sacred fig and started meditating. At the end of the meditation, he achieved all the answers to his question and became Buddha.

Since that day, Siddhartha had a new goal in his life: to help humans lead a better life and understand its essentials.
